    I don’t think there is one since guest services used the same DCPI as the rest of the deluxes when when they went to check for Mirage for me. It’s 087-16-3985 for those who don’t remember.

    Got Mirage at my local Target last night. Appreciate all of the postings that prompted me to head out. Left the rest of the wave behind as I’m very conservative with TF spending now. I’ll wait for reviews on Impactor to make a decision about him.

    I’m trying to decide whether to get Siege Thundercracker and Skywarp or wait for the Earthrise versions. I struggle to pay $80 for two Voyagers but I imagine Skywarp will have a similar situation in the next line.

    Just picked up Mirage, Impactor, and Barricade at Target in Alhambra. Another full set on the pegs as of 5 minutes ago.

    The Earthrise Seeker mold looks great and might be our one way of also getting the Coneheads. The lack of a waist articulation somewhat disappoints me, BUT it looks great nonetheless in both modes. I like the Siege Seekers mostly because of playability reasons.

    I'm tempted to just get Siege since they’re unique in the overall TF toyline. I still have the classics versions minus Skywarp.

    They’re quite unique in my honest opinion. I really like what Hasbro did with the Tetrajet Seekers.

    IMG_0750.JPG IMG_0753.JPG Alameda Target: 1 each of Impactor, Barricade, and Thundercracker. Bought Impactor, left everything else. They also had 2 Rainmaker sets for those who still want them.

    Got Impactor at Sunnyvale Target, 1 more on the peg. Also saw 1 Impactor at Santa Clara Target.
    No Mirage or Barricade there or Cupertino or Mountain View :( 
    Plenty of Rainmakers, Micromaster 10 packs and Off Road patrols though. Also lots of Lionizer, Aimless & Blowpipe.

    Also bought SS44 Optimus and got the $10 off $50 coupon deal... and then ordered Omega Supreme online with the $25 off $100 coupon :)

    Sacramento Area

    Walmart Roseville on Pleasant Grove has 2 Impactors, 1 Mirage (I took one), 1 Barricade, 1 Red Alert, 1 Six Gun, 1 Hound. Starscream was on the shelf below and I think Shockwave. No more G1 Soundwaves or cassettes.

    I picked up the last Mirage and Thundercracker from the Rancho Cordova Target off Zinfandel, they still had two each of Impactor and Barricade. Also one pack of Rainmakers.

    Gave in and picked up Impactor and Thundercracker at Target today using the $10 off $50 purchase promotion. Plan to keep them in box for now until I’m sure I want them but at least if I do I will have saved some money.

    Just picked up my Soundblaster and Bluestreak from Westminster Walmart off Beach/Trask by ship to store. They have Siege Wave 4 deluxes and 1 Thundercracker. I still haven't seen studio series DOTM Leader Optimus anywhere...

    Last week I saw SS-44 at the Irvine Walmart on Von Karman. Don't know if it's still there, but just wanted to pass that along in case you wanted to check.

    Thanks. =) If I'm in that area I'll check it out but with gas prices going up around here, I rather stick to my local stores within 5 miles.

    I remember seeing a post that Walgreens may get an early shipment of Ratchet today. Has anyone found him yet?

    I grabbed one each of Mirage and Barricade from the stockroom at the Target off La Cienega in Culver City. They have the rest of the case in the back.
